Very helpful, friendly employees and lots to see and lots of hands-on activites. We used our museum membership from Cincinnati to get in free. Free parking garage across the street. And we love the carousel next door!

We have been here before but we came back for a birthday party and was very impressed. Would definitely recommend this as a alternative party birthday

It has an I-Max movie theater. There are a lot of hands on activities for kids. We really liked the trip to Mars with lot of visual and sound effects. It felt so real that one of my relatives panicked a little when the rocket took off. There is a fee but it is low. There is a free parking garage across the street. The museum is very large. You don't have to walk every where. I would wear comfortable shoes. Plan on spending 3-4 hours even if you skip the movie. At the end we went up on the roof for a bird's eye view of the city and harbor. I think the theater tickets were too expensive. We have been to this museum several times but we always skip the movies.

We loved this museum because the was so much to do and see. We look forward to going again. It was amazing how many airplanes and helicopters are on display. We especially liked the flight simulators and the gentleman who did the science demonstrations.

Right in downtown, Some of the exhibits were out of order, but it was a fun visit with two children under 7, we spend a good 2 hours of fun.
Also has IMAX theater.
